[Gluster-users] Upgrade 5.5 -> 5.6: network traffic bug fixed?

In my first test on my testing setup the traffic was on a normal
level, so i thought i was "safe". But on my live system the network
traffic was a multiple of the traffic one would expect.
performance.quick-read was enabled in both, the only difference in the
volume options between live and testing are:
performance.read-ahead: testing on, live off
performance.io-cache: testing on, live off
I ran another test on my testing setup, deactivated both and copied 9
GB of data. Now the traffic went up as well, from before ~9-10 MBit/s
up to 100 MBit/s with both options off. Does performance.quick-read
require one of those options set to 'on'?
I'll start another test shortly, and activate on of those 2 options,
maybe there's a connection between those 3 options?
